Here's a little gem I found on the web that makes life a little easier. It calculates in dozenal and decimal and also converts between the two - only basic functions though - it's not scientific! http://www.bristoljon.uk/projects/dozenal/

I found it buggy. I wonder whether there's a good sci calculator in dozenal by now.

Do you mean Paul by 'buggy' that you found that it has errors? There was a floating point error in it a couple of weeks ago but I thought that the creator had fixed it by last week

Just a quick Google search under 'dozenal scientific calculator' yielded nothing of interest, at least on page 1 of results.

Not calculation errors, just getting it to present what it's supposed to.

Really, I found it neat and simple to use. I am guessing that you find it slow to enter in the numerals through using the mouse to click and select rather than the faster method of typing in the numerals directly. I just find it neat that the base dozenal numbers plus the basic arithmetic functions with of course the Cancel button and the Dozenal/Decimal Conversion button just happen to fit nicely into a 5 x 4 matrix on the calculator - quite a coincidence really. Is this a sign from God that Dozenal is meant to be the superior number base used for calculations ha ha ha?

   I'm trying to write a macro to convert decimal to dozenal in Excel. If anyone already has such a macro please post the text. I don't yet know how to write because I don't yet know the programming language.

There is a downloadable calculator I found on the USA dozenal website that I use often.
